long time no see

bangla typography
a new born bangla font, designed and developed from hand crafted pencil lines!

this time it’s something very serious discussion about typography. till february 15, i knew typography from the point of academic activities. i actually didn’t know how it could be used in real life. one of my friends called me then who is working in an largest ad agency of the country. they were looking for someone who can create a full usable set of bangla alphabets. i wasn’t sure but somehow found enough courage to do it. later i came to know it’s for one of the largest mobile phone company who is going to be re-branded within the end of this month. last 30 days i just lived with the alphabets… and the best part is, i’ve came to know about the best typographer i’ve ever met. the deadline was too tight… almost impossible for beginner like us. but we’ve done it somehow! it wasn’t superb but definitely we can treat it as an achievement. congratulations to us!

so, though it’s long time you didn’t see me here, i am feeling good to say you something new… i’ll tell you about the experience soon in my next post.

have nice time 🙂

… doesn’t lie

it’s a huge day. So the crowd is huge all around. I’ve started the day bit different than usual. The weather is too harsh… but it could be even worse if there weren’t few drops of rain last night. I found myself so stupid in the very first day of the year. Then I tried to start it usual way. I went to charukala… my own world. But it seemed everything mocking to me, which I couldn’t stand anymore. So I came back home, turn on the tv, watching a documentary about fishing. Then sat in front my pc and found some work to do and I’ve started feeling good. Machine doesn’t lie actually…

Big bang!!!

Sigh… I know its 9 april but don’t know which day it is. Last 8 days I just had one thinking in my mind… even when I dreamed in my sleep, I just saw this thing. It’s over now and suddenly I have nothing to do… silence after the big bang! Nothing was perfect but somehow it’s okay. There were hundreds of mistakes in the catalog, the website still incomplete, there was no dhaki (folk drummer) and so the rally was almost silent. The food was readymade, not that much tasty. Lot of problems in the management but I don’t know why many of my friends thanked for the effort. Most of the senior said it was superb. Teachers said they even didn’t imagine that much could be happened in such short time… it’s like a milestone. I am happy because I myself even didn’t expect that much. There was hundreds of crisis, obstacles… but now nothing seems impossible. Well, I wanted to publish a post and let my readers know about the exhibition. But I am sorry, I didn’t get the time.

I’ve learnt few things:
1. work let you forget everything, even it’ll let you forget yourself.
2. you should have a ‘rhino skin’ if you are a part of the management of an event.
3. duniya shokter vokto, noromer jom
4. sobai to amra amrai. Doshe-gune achi, thaki na kichudin…
